PSN Purchases Will Not Transfer to PS4

PSN purchases will not transfer to PS4As you are all well aware, the Playstation 4 was officially revealed last night at a Sony press event.  Most of the things revealed at the event had already been leaked as rumors.  There wasn’t a lot of breaking information like price, release date, etc.

One of the big questions has now been answered, however.  Sony has officially confirmed through engadget that PSN transfers will not transfer to the PS4.  Whether this includes just full retail PS3 games bought digitally, or if it includes all PSN Arcade games and PS1/PS2 classics is unclear, but is likely that none of those will transfer to the PS4.

Is that a dealbreaker for you, or were you expecting the bad news already?

    It might delay my purchase of the PS4, but let’s all be honest… it won’t prevent the inevitable upgrade when all new games are coming out, built for the PS4.

      Where do you get your info from Phil and how credible is it. Make sure you know what your talking about before you discredit others.

    If I end up purchasing a Ps4, this won’t be a big deal to me, considering I’ll be buying it for the new games.
    I never sell my consoles, so if I feel the want to play an older game, I have no problem switching systems. I guess most people that find this a dealbreaker are either lazy, or plan on selling their current console to upgrade.

    It will delay the ourchase of a PS4, but as said already with the trnsfer from all games into PS4 games I eventually buy it but its still a deal break.

    Hope they redo the whole playstation network. I hope we all have to choose new names and every thing so all the old accounts nobody uses will be opened up I would like to have a simple name. Like my first name!

    Hey Ryan, I noticed you don’t bother to quote a source. Far as I know, you just made this shit up.

    Quote/cite your source, please.

    you all need to fu@k off with this $hit. SONY is amazing and you can all $crew off. PSN games SHOULD BE COMPATIBLE with ALL systems. Backwords compatibility is an Absoulute MUST HAVE. If not then its a waste of money and momory.
